    Snakes are scary

    People from rural-India, mostly Un-Educated have this sense of extreme fear of snakes to which they often fall prey(out of carelessness ofcourse)..Most of them hardly bother to wear footwear while working at the fields(The sad part is, most of them can't afford a decent pair of sneakers)..
